The standard by which all other mandolins are judged.

Gibson luthiers painstakingly handcraft the F-5 'The Fern' Mandolin to replicate the 1925 original notable for its abalone fern headstock inlay. It has a tuned parallel tone bar with a carved spruce top and maple back and sides to generate that world-famous tone. A sumptuous finish, hand-engraved gold-plated hardware, and triple binding all speak to its vintage pedigree. Includes Gibson hardshell case.

Truly Amazing

Comments about Gibson F-5 The Fern Mandolin:

Let me tell that there are two production mandolins that I have every experienced that top this mandolin. Those two are the gibson master models. I would say this mando is about 98% of those instruments. If you want to spend 2-3 times more for that last 2%, then go ahead. If not, this is the best looking, feeling, and playing mandolin in existence. period.

This Mandolin is awesome. My friend owns one of these and I love it! If you have this much money, don't waste it on a cheap car that won't last long. Get The F5 The Fern!
